Ballet Scores for Concert Audiences

April 29, 2017
 

Ballet music lives a different life on the ballet stage than on the concert platform. In a ballet's original form, there may be much music accompanying mimed stage action. This music may be edited out for a ballet suite, designed only for the enjoyment of concert goers. Then, there are ballets, short enough, or concentrated enough, to avoid suiting at all!

On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will hear excerpts from some famous ballet suites.
